2009 NFL Barometer: Week 4 - 4 comments

By R.J. White

Indianapolis Colts v Arizona Cardinals

Sorry for the late Barometer column this week, friends, but I took an impromptu trip to Sin City for a few days. But I’m back now, and I’m ready for another fun-filled NFL Sunday! One interesting nugget I brought back from Vegas: the Colts’ odds to win the Super Bowl opened at 8/1, and after going 3-0, they sat at 12-1 when I arrived at the sports book. Um, what? At this point, they’re a lock to win the AFC South, guaranteeing them at least one home playoff game, and they could easily wind up with home-field advantage. Others are taking notice — the line shifted to 10/1 by the time I headed to the airport.

    I miss the funny quotes and analysis. That’s my favorite part of the column.

    We’ll get you back next week Smipims. I was away for the week and didn’t get in till late Saturday night, and I wanted to get the results up for you guys before the games started. We’ll have the comments back in all their glory from this point forward.
